But I hit a point in the mid-1990s where closing the next deal and cutting another ribbon just didn’t have the same appeal. And I began to ask, “Is there more to life than this?” and “What’s next for me?” I knew I needed a halftime – a time to refocus and make a game plan for the second half of life. Fast forward to today, and surprisingly enough, my second half has

5 Essential Questions For Leaders Seeking Lasting Friendships…

Do you have lots of acquaintances, some buddies, but few (if any) deep, lasting friendships? You’re not alone. For one, I can relate. And I see it often in the hard-driving achievers that I coach. Many leaders reach midlife and discover that intimacy has been squeezed out of their marriage, family and friendships.

Re-Defining My Role in the Marketplace

By Matt Levy, Halftime Alum There’s been a lot written about finding our purpose in life. While our purpose may be fixed throughout our time here on earth, how it plays out as we move along can change. At least that’s how it has worked for me.

How God Surprised Me in Halftime

“So what is God showing you?” Those were the words my Halftime Coach asked shortly into our scheduled call. Two months earlier I had attended a Halftime Institute Launch Event, gotten clarity around a personal mission statement to guide me, and formulated a game plan for moving forward in my journey "from success to significance.” In my business career, strategy and planning always seemed to come easily.

10 KEYS TO MID-LIFE RENEWAL, Part 1

  Reflections From A 20-Year Mentee of Bob Buford Two weeks before my friend and mentor Bob Buford passed away, I took a day of silence. A day alone with God in the beauty of historic Pinehurst, North Carolina. For some reason, I brought my whole file of notes, learnings and conversations with Bob over our 20-year partnership. In 1998, we locked arms to build the Halftime Institute, but he shaped my mind and heart along the way. A typical mentoring time would be a 90-minute breakfast at the
